Abstract:Apomorphine hydrochloride (APO) is known to be a dopamine receptor agonist, and has recently been found to be a novel drug for Alzheimer's disease (AD). We found that APO treatment ameliorated oxidative stress in an AD mouse model and specifically attenuated the hydrogen peroxide-induced p53-related apoptosis in the SH-SY5Y neuroblastoma cell line. To further understand the mechanism behind this action, we investigated the actions of APO on intracellular redox systems, such as the glutathione cycle and catalas… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
